RADIO - TELEVISION - BUSINESS


Thanks for visiting my official website.

Over three decades I've done it all from presenting the show to running the company and loved every minute of it. I launched, managed, presented, owned or led some of the best-known radio brands in the UK with success coming from hard work, passion for the medium and a strong vision for the future. 

My secret was to hire people smarter than me, point them in the right direction and watch them thrive. We enjoyed challenging the status quo so trust was vital, taking risks without fear of failure. It was this spirit that drove us forward and allowed us to enjoy the success we achieved. As my closest friend would say: Winning is addictive!    

If we did one thing particularly well, it was that we never forgot the magic of radio mostly happens between the songs. Music has an important part to play of course, increasingly so these days, but this is a medium that comes alive when graced with gifted communicators and engaging personalities. You have to seek out those who can make a difference.  

As you might expect, it's been a roller-coaster journey, and luckily I've managed to write it all down in a book that highlights the people, places, stunts, deals, and disasters that made it a story worth telling. All proceeds go to charity, including our own Radio Academy.   Click the link above.  

I work with a range of clients who want to find a way to win in a competitive market. While no one has the monopoly on being right, the experience of having 'been there and done that' helps to avoid costly errors and give you an edge. I'd be happy to chat about any ideas you may have so feel free to get in touch. In the meantime, have a look around the site, read a few blogs, catch up on my other interests or browse my career to date. Enjoy!
